Once a month and for other special events and activities we spend time in direct evangelism – either door to door, at the park or mall, on the Maryville College or University of Tennessee Campus. This can take the form of one on one witnessing, street preaching, or handing out tracts. Please contact the church to learn more about these activities.
We are committed to reaching our community for Christ and desire to be an integral part of God’s work in the Blount County area. To accomplish this we seek to have multiple outreach events each year including marriage conferences, Fall Festival outreach, Biblical counseling seminars, and other specially focused ministries.
Additionally, we support or are engaged in a variety of local ministries which proclaim the gospel as they minister to the practical needs of people. Although we may not be in full agreement with everything these ministries do, we believe that they are committed to the gospel of Christ and to the authority of the Word of God.
The Chilhowee Baptist Association is the local association of Southern Baptist Convention churches.
